Maverick Propulsion System & Heavy Warhead

The Maverick weapon system is a versatile air-to-ground standoff missile designed to defeat hardened targets such as bunkers, bridges, radar or missile sites, and ships.

The Maverick is a fire-and-forget missile that improves standoff capability and pilot/aircraft survivability. The missile can be equipped with one of two different warheads designated as light or heavy. The light warhead is the older version shaped-charge configuration used with a larger variety of aircraft. The Maverick can be launched from many aircraft, including the A-7, A-10, AV-8Bs, F-16, F-18 and F-111,

The Maverick solid-propellant rocket motor uses a reduced-smoke propellant in a two-stage sustain thrust configuration. To maximize propellant loading, Orbital ATK uses a case-bonded grain design. Both warheads utilize proven performance to defeat a wide range of targets. The motor features an aluminum forging aft closure/blast tube.

Orbital ATK is the sole supplier for the Maverick rocket motor and heavy warhead. We have manufactured more than 15,000 Maverick heavy warheads since the early 1980s and more than 2,000 reduced smoke rocket motors since 1997.
